No, it's not a size thing with a difference being difficult to tell, the iphone4 is exactly double the old resolution, so old apps look exactly the same. The ipad is a different resolution and size, so some kind of scaling other than just replacing each pixel with 4 pixels of the same colour has to happen.

Right, that's what I've been saying.
